Everyone can appreciate the importance of straight teeth; however, did you know orthodontics is not just creating that winning smile?
Sure, along with creating a pleasing appearance and promoting self-esteem it also helps keep your teeth and gums healthy.
Teeth in correct alignment makes looking after them much easier. This means teeth are more resistant to decay and less susceptible to gum disease. Correct alignment also reduces abnormal tooth wear and prevents jaw joint discomforts too.
Our dentists, William and Nikhil have trained and are experienced in the field of orthodontics. Although not specialist Orthodontists, they have both completed a two-year comprehensive orthodontic program through Progressive Orthodontic Seminars. They also provide Invisalign and Myobrace treatment options to cater for patients with all needs
Majority of orthodontic issues are simple to treat especially if they are identified at a growing age. The severity of malocclusion, of course, will dictate the nature and extent of treatment that is required but the team at Essential Care Dental have the expertise and skills to guide you in the right direction.
Besides enhancing the appearance of your smile, orthodontics can also:
- Correct bad bites and habits
- Fix teeth crowding
- Close excessive dental gaps
- Align dental arches
- Reduce the risk of tooth damage by external impact
- Accommodate displaced teeth
- Prevent drifting of teeth
Traditional braces are a tried and tested design for correcting overcrowded, crooked teeth and misaligned bites. This form of orthodontic treatment can bring even the most severe cases into alignment, quickly and cost-effectively.
If you’re feeling self-conscious about wearing braces, clear braces are the ideal solution. Clear braces offer a more discreet, clear alternative to the metal look, without losing the efficiency of traditional braces.
Straighten your smile comfortably and invisibly with Invisalign. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign doesn’t affect the way you eat, drink or clean your teeth. We use a series of custom-moulded, clear, removable aligners to gradually move your teeth towards the desired position.
Myobrace is an alternative form of orthodontic treatment. It is aimed at addressing the underlying causes of crooked teeth and misaligned jaw mainly addressing importance of nasal breathing and rectifying any bad habits. Our team are trained to identify children who display these signs and symptoms and informed decisions are made to consider any interceptive Myobrace treatment. Usually treatment is best considered at an early age, between the 6-10 years of age. Treatment can be considered later however as more adult teeth come through and jaw development slows down, more traditional forms of orthodontic treatment may need to be considered.
